In 1986, Gooden pleaded no contest to battery on an officer and resisting arrest after getting into a scuffle with Tampa police officers. He was sentenced to three years' probation. A year later, he tested positive for cocaine and went to drug rehab for 28 days. In 1994, he was suspended for 60 days after violating Majorl League Baseball's drug program by failing two substance abuse tests. Gooden eventually checked into the Betty Ford Center, but failed more tests after returning.But his newest offense is just beyond belief.
In 2002, Gooden pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of reckless driving after he was arrested in Tampa. A year later, he was busted for driving with a suspended license after a traffic stop in Tampa. In 2005, he was arrested at his Tampa home for allegedly hitting his fiancee. Also that year, Gooden was accused of fleeing from a traffic stop in Tampa after being pulled over for driving erratically and reeking of alcohol. Gooden was busted again in 2006 for violating his probation after he appeared high on cocaine at a scheduled meeting with his probation officer. He spent eight months in jail for that violation.
FLEEING THE SCENE
WITH HIS CHILD IN THE CAR!
It reads like this classic scene from The Birdcage NOTE: ONE NOT SAFE FOR WORK WORD IS USED AT THE END OF THE SCENE
Darryl Strawberry's cleaned up his act (so it seems) and is keeping it real on the very un-real Celebrity Apprentice. Hopefully the Good Doctor is one season of Celeb Rehab (or better yet, real rehab) away from following suit.
